The simplest definition of a roadmap is this: a visual representation of a plan. A well-crafted roadmap succinctly conveys how a team will get where they’re going — including which resources are required and when important deliverables are due.
One of the most popular types of roadmaps is the product roadmap. Roadmaps provide a crystal clear way for product teams to visualize how their product will evolve over time. Because a product roadmap is a visual plan, it plays really well in a presentation — making it a great tool for PMs to align all stakeholders on their one high-level product strategy.
Other teams have started to catch on to roadmaps and how powerful of a communication tool they can be to rally stakeholders and win executive buy-in on their plans. More and more marketing, IT and project-based teams are visualizing their strategies with roadmaps. And this is why we’ve created a Roadmapping Field Guide. Here, you’ll find the roadmapping basics — best practices that are applicable to all types of roadmapping teams — like design how-tos, presentation tips, and a guide to managing execs during the roadmapping process.Learn More
